Mancini leaves the national team, the FIGC is looking for a coach: from Spalletti to Cannavaro, the names

The names, among the rumors, are starting to make their way

Roberto Mancini leaves the national team. The blue coach’s resignation comes less than a month from the start of qualifying for the next 2024 European Championships and a few days after Mancini’s appointment as coordinator of the national teams, from the Under 20 to the senior selection. Now the FIGC must quickly find the new technical commissioner. The names, among the rumors, are starting to make their way. Free on the market there are two heavyweights. Luciano Spalletti, after winning the Scudetto last year with Napoli, is currently off for a sabbatical year. For the coach from Certaldo, after the first tricolor of his career, the Italy bench could represent the culmination of a career. Antonio Conte is in the pits after the conclusion of the adventure with Tottenham Hotspur. The former Juventus and Inter coach has already led the national team in the past: a blue encore, at the moment, would be a surprise. In the background, the names of younger coaches, linked to the blue by the successes obtained by players. The Fabio Cannavaro hypothesis or, as outlined by Sky Sport, the suggestive ‘bet’ with the investiture of Daniele De Rossi for a new cycle should not be ruled out a priori.
